Hey donny, I live right by the lake in Cobourg. Other than July and August when I am out on my charter boat I spend all my time in the woods. This year I will be learning how to operate the mill. Looking forward to it. I can use all the help I can get when it come to working with wood.

Hey df :),

If you find yourself without a helper when you're at your camp, let me know. If I'm not busy and if you want a spare hand for a day to help hold stuff and someone to bounce thoughts off while you learn about your mill, let me know. You're just about a "one coffee" drive away from me and I'll go up and give you a hand.

cheers eh?

Sapsucker,its tough when winter slams shut,and its always just before you want to do something.Your handle brings back memories.When we were young my cousin and I were bad little dudes we hunted woodpeckers with BB guns,we had ourselves convinced they were yellow bellied sapsuckers,and had to be bad birds. The only way for us to handle winter is to stockpile logs before the woods is locked and have a roof over the mill.I've done a little" sugering "as we call it alot of work for little return.I think the oldtimers did it because their was nothing else to do at that time of year.Frank C.

At one time maple sugar/syrup was about the only source of sweetening to be had. Later cane sugar was available, but cost money. Was easier to make maple sugar than cash to buy cane sugar. It was a big deal, way back then.

I spent a few hours trying to dig out the bush road to where my log pile is located. I didnít even make it half way. My Case DX 40 worked hard moving the 5 feet of packed snow off the road. Iíll give it another try this weekend. I need to start sawing.

My brother and I put up 100 sap cans. What a chore that was snowshoeing through 5 plus feet of snow. We had to get it done, the sap is flowing very well and we should be doing our first boil this week. This is a nice way to kill time waiting to get the mill going.
